The Hawks are shopping Paul Millsap and working on contingencies to try to keep Al Horford.
Millsap was arguably the best power forward in the Eastern Conference, so teams looking to make a run this season might be willing to mortgage their future. Of course, Horford going with another team makes these trade rumors a moot point. Jul 2 - 2:28 PM

The Hawks and Suns have "pondered in recent days" a trade involving Paul Millsap and a collection of Suns draft picks, according to Chris Haynes of

The Hawks are going to try to explore a deal to keep Al Horford, but this seems like a wild move for one of the best power forwards in the NBA on a good contract next season. Although, Millsap is a lock to not pick up his player option in 2017, so he would be unrestricted next summer. The Suns had two top-eight picks in Marquese Chriss and Dragan Bender while they hold all their future picks and two additional firsts coming their way from Miami. Get ready for a lot of Hawks rumors this weekend.

Paul Millsap, Paul George, Hassan Whiteside, Tony Allen and Jimmy Butler were named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team on Wednesday.

Surprisingly, Millsap wasn't really even close to making the first team with only 11 first-team votes. While Hassan Whiteside led the NBA in blocks, the Heat started out as a better defense while he was off the court earlier in the season.

Paul Millsap nearly double-doubled during Atlanta's Game 4 loss to Cleveland, producing 19 points, nine boards, three assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, one block and three turnovers in 41 minutes.

Millsap had the hot hand early, scoring 15 of his points through the first quarter of action, but he just couldn’t keep his momentum going throughout the game. Al Horford is bound for free agency, and if the Hawks aren’t able to retain him, Millsap will likely shoulder a larger offensive load during the 2016-17 season. He’ll make for a fine late first-round selection in next year’s drafts.

Paul Millsap wasn't happy with the way the Cavaliers went about breaking the postseason three-point record.

The Cavaliers went a bit out of their way to break the postseason three-point record despite a big lead and Millsap and the Hawks weren't happy about it. "It's a certain way of being a professional," Millsap said. "I'm not mad about it, but just being professionals man. If that's how you want to approach it, that's how you approach it." The Hawks will have a chance for revenge in Game 3 on Friday and will need a big game out of Millsap to avoid going down 3-0 to the Cavaliers.
May 5 - 9:19 AM

Paul Millsap double-doubled with 16 points and 11 rebounds on Wednesday, while Al Horford added 10 points and three boards in a crushing Game 2 loss in Cleveland.

The Hawks' frontcourt duo has the distinction of ranking Nos. 1 and 2 in contested shots per game during the postseason, ahead of defensive stalwarts like Hassan Whiteside and Draymond Green. The problem tonight was perimeter defense and lackluster offense, however, and the Hawks have a ton of questions to answer as they alter their gameplan for a crucial Game 3 in Atlanta on Friday.
May 4 - 10:44 PM

Paul Millsap made 6-of-19 from the field for 17 points with 13 rebounds, three assists, two steals, four blocks and two turnovers in 40 minutes against the Cavs on Monday.

He saw some minutes at the five, but he was on LeBron James for most of this game. Millsap's rim protection was outstanding yet again, but he's struggled on offense in the postseason. He only has a 50.0 true shooting percentage in the seven games, which is down from 55.6 during the regular season. He's still going to be a huge part of the offense.
May 2 - 10:07 PM

Paul Millsap scored 17 points in a series-clinching win over the Celtics on Thursday, adding eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and four blocks in 37 minutes.

It wasn't the best series for Millsap, but he put a stamp on this series with his defense. It'll be very interesting to see what happens in the series against the Cavs because coach Mike Budenholzer will likely put him on LeBron James quite a bit. The stats will obviously be there.
Apr 28 - 11:12 PM

Paul Millsap scored 10 points in Tuesday's blowout win over the Celtics, adding eight rebounds, six assists, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

He obviously would've played a lot more, but the game was over after the Hawks scored 42 points in the third quarter. This was Millsap's second excellent game in a row after scoring 45 points with 13 rebounds, four blocks, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in Game 4, so his slow start to the series is no longer a concern. The Hawks could clinch the series with a win in Game 6 on Thursday in Boston.
Apr 26 - 11:10 PM

Paul Millsap blew up for a personal playoff-high 45 points on 19-of-31 shooting during Atlanta's tough Game 4 defeat, adding 13 rebounds, four blocks, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

Millsap's offensive struggles ended in a big way tonight, as Boston simply had no answer for his versatility, though he was held scoreless in overtime. His defense has been a constant and through three games the Celtics were shooting just 34.3 percent while Millsap was on the court, compared to 48.5 percent when he was out. If he plays near this level again in Game 5 the Hawks will have a great chance to seize a 3-2 lead in the series.
Apr 24 - 9:18 PM

Paul Millsap shot just 1-of-12 from the field in Tuesday's 89-72 win over the Celtics on Tuesday, finishing with just four points.

His offense wasn't clicking tonight, but he still found other ways to impact the game and was fantastic on defense with four blocks. He also added seven rebounds and an assist, but his quiet night in the box score shouldn't prevent you from keeping him locked and loaded in all fantasy lineups moving forward. He's going to be much better in Game 3.
Apr 19 - 9:45 PM

Paul Millsap scored 14 points with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday.

He had one of his best games of the season against the Celtics back on Apr. 9 with a season-high 32 points to go with 16 boards and a full line, but didn't produce as much here. Millsap is going to be awesome in this series and he's should be on an All-NBA team as the Eastern Conference's best power forward.
Apr 16 - 10:41 PM

Paul Millsap scored 13 points in Wednesday's 109-98 loss to the Wizards, shooting 4-of-14 from the field with 11 rebounds, one assist, two steals and three blocks in 31 minutes.

The Hawks could've secured the No. 3 seed in the East with a win, but they will have to settle for the No. 4 seed and will face the Celtics (No. 5) in the first round of the playoffs. Millsap wasn't great tonight, but he had a special season for the Hawks and finished as the 10th best player in standard 9-cat leagues. Al Horford added 19 points, eight rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.
Apr 13 - 11:17 PM

Paul Millsap scored a season-high 31 points during a 118-107 win over the Celtics on Saturday, adding 16 rebounds, three assists, two steals, five blocks and five 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He's amazing and he's still underrated. Millsap is on some kind of heater in his last seven, averaging 18.1 points, 12.6 boards, 3.6 assists, 2.1 steals, 3.9 blocks and 1.9 treys on 49.0 percent from the field and 83.3 percent from the line -- he's fantasy's No. 1 player in that span, obviously. He's a top-10 player on the year and has been solid all season. The Hawks getting this win gives them a whole game cushion for their No. 3 seed. They'll host a Cavs team possibly resting on Monday, especially since the Cavs probably won't want to play the Hawks in the second round.
Apr 9 - 10:50 PM

Paul Millsap scored 13 points during a 95-87 win over the Raptors on Thursday with 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal and five blocks.

Another night he's gone full Millsap. He continues to be one of the most underrated players in the reality and in fantasy. Obviously, savvy fantasy owners don't underrate him at all.
